Another quick change of pace.
A very sweet and loyal friend of mine,
, wanted to collaborate with me in order to learn the ins and outs of Inkscape, so I took her through the motions by using a pony OC of her's (Earthquake). It started with a sketch and colour map by her, and ultimately came to this final piece seen above as examples of how to manipulate lighting and shading effects using a full-blown vector tool, and all with little time expenditure. Suffice to say, she loves the results, and will try using the program more often. ^__^
Thank you, Cay Cay, for making me feel like a tutor again. I've missed the feeling.
